politics, it is president obama and joe biden. >> what made it work, if you go back to the days when we were competing for the nomination. all the debates we had, the only two people that didn't disagree on any subject were president obama and joe biden. so when we got into this deal we didn't have what other administrations had where the vice president and president had a different take on the major issues of the day, we were totally sympatico. and what developed and made it easier, it went from working with each other for a friendship. we actually had built trust. >> you disagreed with the president over policy, and you know how to read him pretty well. so how can you tell when you have done something that he doesn't like or that makes him angry? >> oh, that is easy, that is easy. we made a deal early on, when one of us were dissatisfied, we just flat told the other person. and so lunch once a week, you know, that is when we talk. and when he is not -- doesn't like something i have done, he just flat tells me. >> he says joe -- >> he says joe, look, i don't agree with the way you did

but this is obama/biden politics. biggest effort ever to try to change gun control laws, doesn't mean it will work. but they will try. >> senator feinstein said it was an uphill road. will the administration lower expectations, maybe concentrate on the background checks and not so much the assault weapons ban. >> background checks are enormously popular and have a better chance of passage. it seems based on vice president biden emphasized yesterday and what some on capitol hill are saying, better to get the low-hanging fruit, go for the measures that could build momentum. pass those, maybe come back. the president feels passionately about the issue. any parent can look at his face when he talks about newtown and know it's personal. and the best way to channel that desire, is get some victories and build momentum. try to pass a whole big package with a ban on some weapons, a real hot button, could cause the entire effort to collapse. he doesn't want that. >> and the 2008 campaign, the president and secretary of state hillary clinton appearing on "60 minutes." want to get your thoughts after this. >

, but by the same token what obama has done to change presidential politics is very amazing and i don't think that's a function of what he did. i want to learn from it and replicate it and i want to advance beyond it. >> my point is that it has a role in this is one of the most important things when president obama goes out of office. you hear this rhetoric about turning out votes are. it's tru that the changed the face of the electric two times and he did it by reaching out to people and not by changing talking point, but by reaching out and engaging people in the process. many republicans were trying to prevent frommi voting and they themselves a disservice as we saw with the nbc news poll this week agrees that access to legal abortion should be and that roe versus wade should not be overturned and you're a top priority of the republican party is to overturn roe versus wade. that's a real problem. >> very quickly. >> let's quickly look at these issues on the questions of life which the gallup institution has taken 2% to 7% on the pro-life issue -- >> no, let me finish on the issue of gun control

right now, the work that is being done in democratic politics right now, led by president obama at the start of his second term is this effort to turn what has been long-standing majority support for liberal policies into appreciation that those policies aren't just individual free-floating tech no ratically good ideas that we agree on, those policies come from a worldview and a problem-solving approach that is in fact the governing philosophy of this country. we're a liberal country. we are not a center-right country the way the right always wants to tell us. we are a country where liberal policies are widely popular and, frankly, at the national level we express that right now by mostly voting for democrats. by a lot. that's the portrait of the country that the president was painting this week in his second inaugural, in tying this list of what get described as liberal policies to fundamental centrist, widely acknowledged, basically universal american values. >> we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with

't touch. this political negligence suggests that obama has chosen to ignore negative budget projections, credit downgrades, falling revenues and perpetual increases in mandatory spending. instead, the president is teeing up partisan legislative battles with republicans in hopes of -- but as a measurement of the president's seriousness, his second inaugural address can only be seen as a grand failure that missed yet another historic opportunity to call americans together in the name of shared sacrifice. and richard haass, there is another opportunity, which would be the state of the union which i'm sort of banking on. >> traditionally inaugurals are the poetry, and then the state of the union becomes the prose. and the president did not prepare for educate the american people about some of the tough decisions to come, particularly on medicare and medicaid. so the real question going forward for the state of the union is whether he essentially addresses that. and whether he -- because we've still got more than, i think, more than $2 trillion in serious cuts to be made to entitlements over

of the road in terms of the political spectrum values. i think he has a very strong record as a patriot of this country. he has proven that. and he's also someone who fits very well with president obama and soon to be secretary of state john kerry. i would hope people would judge him on the whole body of his record as a public servant all the way back when he was a sergeant in the vietnam war. to me i think he would serve with distinction and honor. >> i agree. he made that point in his opening statement which was to judge him on the entirety of his record of his life, which obviously is very exemplary. but do you think the republicans will end up filibustering him? there would be some suggestions that ted cruz is going to put a hold on him. >> i sure hope not. i'm a career person. i serve both republican and democratic administrations. we can't litigate the past over and over again. if you think of what is ahead for the next secretary of defense, how do we get out of afghanistan with honor effectiveness and redeem the valor of our soldiers who have serve there had? how do we face the c
